Missed last night...

I missed my only shot this whole season last night. Problems started early. I sprained my ankle on the way to the stand. Not that bad but made the walk and climb miserable. Then while I was pulling up my bow, the rope snaged some brush and the bow swung into the tree (I blame my miss on that). I cut some more branches and climbed a little higher than I did before and saw deer while doing so. At about 4:00, so not dark, this 10 point buck is walking the creek bottom and starts up a trail to a field to feed. I took my shot as he got to the field entrance and shot under and infront of him. He ran, but only 30 or so yards and went back to feeding.
A real disapointing night for me to have missed, but great to see the deer. That makes 30 deer in 2 nights of sitting. I only have 3 more possible days to hunt, weather permiting, with my work schedule. I will be back out!

    Good luck. Hate to hear that you missed but that's the way it goes in our sport. All you can do is keep trying and it'll happen.

    Semper Fi!

    surekill I sure do shoot a Hoyt! Other wise when the bow hit the tree I would have had to take it to the Mathews emergency room. The Hoyt will survive with some home remedies.

    [:D][:D][:D] Well it sucks, but we're all going to miss some! But to capitalize on what you said it has to feel great seeing all those deer and having a great hunt![^]
